Yes, that's right. A free SBD for you. The cowboys rounded up almost all the Indians, but a few slipped thru and remain free. This claims to be an AUD, ha ha. Right. Well, the guy was IN the audience at the show, if that counts.

This wouldn't be such a big deal if it weren't also one of the top, if not THE top show of 1988. A long time favorite of the Dr.'s, I struggled through the years with first a tape, then an MP3 of this incredible show. Now, to have this is bliss indeed. Go get it, or be square. Set 2 is really strong. One word, Crazy Fingers. Okay, two. And while you're at it, dig the rare post-Drums Believe it or Not.

enjoy folks, and remember to crank it up for your health.
Dr. Flashback :-)

Absolutely, I've been preaching about this one every chance I get. Not only is the sound great but set II is very strong. Every time I listen to that Playin I start to expect to hear Donna wail when they go back into Playin.

I disagree that it's not an audience though. Don't you think at least a Matrix? The sound is very clear but you can also hear more crowd noise than just about any SBD I know. Any audiophiles out there that can give us their .02?

To me it has the exact same sound as that from Oxford Plains just a couple of weeks before and it IS listed as a SBD here. I agree that it does have more of a matrix feel to it. Having been at Oxford and gotten an AUD from a friend who was there, the quality is damn close to a SBD. The sound system they were using there (also a speedway) was incredible. Incredible sound for an outdoor venue of that size, and if they were using the same gear at Laguna...

it also sounds EXACTLY to a killer tape I have of 6-10-90 Cal Expo. Unfortunately I can't find it on CD anywhere. Anyway, sound like a SBD except you have hear talking between songs.

Thanks so much for the heads up on this one. I'm grabbing it as we speak (sound is much the same at that of Oxford Plains a couple of weeks earlier...love it). This will make the work day pass that much quicker. So far it is obvious that this was the Summer Of Phil.

The touchhead explosion (implosion?) killed the Monterey runs, but it was fun while it lasted. Hot days, chilly nights and some pretty good shows. Thanks for recommending this gem! Oh yeah, good luck dire (rooting for you)

The good Doctor's tongue is most definitely not forked on this one! I've had this show myself for quite a while and though I'm not much of a one for the late eighties this really is a juicy peach that you ought to grab a taste of at the first opportunity. Don't be denied!

Also features a very nice version of a Jerry ballad played live only 7 times. With a Black Muddy encore.
Thanks Doc.

Believe It Or Not
Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jerry Garcia

One or two moments, a piece of your time
Is all that I'm asking, and I'll give you mine
One or two moments out of all you have got
To show how I love you, believe it or not

Remember the day I rolled in to town
With my heart in my shoes, with my head hanging down
Now my only trouble, the rest I forgot
Is to show how I love you, believe it or not

Done time in the lockup, done time in the street
Done time on the upswing and time in defeat
I know what I'm asking, and I know it's a lot
When I say that I love you, believe it or not

I know I'm no angel, my prospects are high
As the flood line in summer when the river's gone dry
But I'll roll up my shirt-sleeves and make my best shot
To show how I love you, believe it or not

Right now while the sun shines on the crest of the hill
With a breeze in the pines and a grey whippoorwill
Making music together in a world time forgot
Let me show how I love you, believe it or not
